013 - 5 Reasons You Need a Business Coach

I often say that hiring a business coach in 2002 was the single best professional decision I ever made. Except for a brief, six-month hiatus, I have had a business coach ever since.

If you haven’t yet decided, this will (hopefully) convince you why you should.

001 - What Is the Double Win?

In this inaugural episode, I provide an overview of the concept behind the show. Specifically, I explain the Double Win, where you are winning at work and succeeding at life, and why it's important to pursue both.
